Most people have not been to Cenote Muul Ich let alone heard of it. This cenote is tucked away in a small village near Coba. That is the good news because this is a hidden paradise.

When you arrive at this cenote you can change and rinse off, then descend down the wooden spiral stairs. You will be entering a closed cenote that is deep down in the ground. Because this cenote is not open, it protects it from debris and maintains the crystal clear waters.

Tips for visiting Cenote Muul Ich

  • Bring goggles because the water is so clear and deep, it is great for viewing.
  • Do not wear lotions or chemicals to protect the water.
